What’s the story?

According to Still Real To Us, Dash Wilder of The Revival, who suffered an injury to his jaw on a goodbye tour with NXT, successfully underwent surgery on April 21, 2017. Wilder posted a picture of himself at the gym just a few hours after his operation.

The Revival were a part of last week’s NXT live events, where the team bid adieu to the NXT Universe.

In case you didn’t know...

The Revival debuted on the main roster on the Raw after WrestleMania 33 and defeated The New Day. The duo also decimated Kofi Kingston and broke his ankle.

The heart of the matter

The injury occurred prior to the show as the current NXT Champion, Bobby Roode, paired up with Scott Dawson to take on Shinsuke Nakamura and Tye Dillinger. Immediately after the impact, Wilder was sent for CAT scan which revealed a fracture to the right side of his jaw.

However, despite the prognosis, Dash and Scott Dawson both classified the situation as nothing more than a “minor speed-bump in the legacy of The Revival.”

What’s next?

With The New Day scheduled to move over to SmackDown LIVE as part of the WWE Superstar Shake-up, The Revival are poised to be one of the top teams on WWE's flagship show. Dash Wilder is set to return in eight weeks.

Author’s take

Dash Wilder is not expected to return for at least eight weeks which implies that he could be back in time for Bad Blood. We hope for Wilder’s speedy recovery and hope that the fans get to see him in the ring much sooner than expected.
